In which form of malaria is the death rate highest?
The most dangerous form of malaria in people is Plasmodium falciparum. It causes the most severe symptoms (for example, “cerebral malaria”) and also the most deaths. It is widespread around the world, but most deaths due to P. falciparum (and in fact, all malaria) occur in sub-Saharan Africa.
